Kashmiri Muslims Expelled from Employment for their Support for Right to Self-Determination

On 17th July, India terminated three Kashmiri Muslim government employees for having their support for the Kashmiri freedom struggle. India accuses the employees of having “links” with “militant outfits”, an accusation that the family members of the employees vehemently deny.

India has for long punished Kashmiri civilians for their alleged links with pro-freedom organizations, even when the links have not been established in any court of law.

The three employees include Public Relations Officer of University of Kashmir, called Faheem Aslam, Murawath Hussain Mir who is a Revenue Department Officer, and a Police Constable called Arshid Ahmad Thoker.

With this order, the number of employees who have been dispossessed of their livelihood for their political views amounts to 52.
